I'd say No Country is probably the closest a Best Picture winner comes for me in recent years. Certainly in my top 5 of that year still. Before that it has to go back to An American In Paris. Closest the Grammy's have come are probably Time Out of Mind then The Joshua Tree before that.

Huh, I didn't realize Gaga had won anything tonight. Glad to see Bad Romance got a win for one of those lesser categories and for the video, although I'm still pissed it wasn't nommed for a big 'un.

It wasn't exactly a strong year.

And while I don't think it really stands as a great "album", I think it's an amazing collection of tracks. There's not one song I dislike, and only one that I don't like a lot (Sometimes You Can't Play It On Your Own).

Well right but we're not talking "one of my favorites" but "my absolute favorite", right?

I couldn't count NCFOM because my #1 that year was I'm Not There.

Time Out of Mind came out the same year as Poppycock and OK Computer so I can't claim 1997.

I was going to agree with you on American in Paris, but then I realized it was the same year as Renoir's The River. 1951 was a very weak year though. The only other contenders I can think of are Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, Tales of Hoffmann, The Steel Helmet, and Streetcar Named Desire.

Leave it to the Father and Son to turn a thread about Cee-Lo Green's feather helmet into a discussion of 1950s French cinema.

Oh yes, well I was merely falling back on that, as like I said originally, I don't know if there's any year where my absolute favorite matches up (aside from possibly An American in Paris... but that would require a bit more research to be sure).

Yeah, independent but still very out there for an indie band. The mainstream of indie.

I know of indie fans who foolishly would cite them as mainstream or sellouts or trash like that... when in reality they're just really good.

Apparently not, judging your response.

And nobody made you the joke police, so if you don't like it, don't comment on it.

Plus, what is this "how many times can you"? You dont even know me? That's my first indie joke in this thread. Section. Forum. Board. Get over it.

An "independent" artist can most definitely be mainstream. I don't know exactly if I'd call Arcade Fire mainstream at this point. There aren't terribly far off though.

"Lighten up" AND "Get over it"?

Goodness.

I'm not sure where people are calling them sell outs. They're not putting a bunch of songs into commercials, which is usually the big gripe (Laz!). Just having a really good string of albums is pretty much all they've done.
